After the events that took place in THE AVENGERS, Agent Phil Coulson returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. where he puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward, an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May; and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz and Agent Jemma Simmons. They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye.
When the brilliant scientist, Dr. Franklin Hall, is kidnapped, Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must race against the clock to locate him. Skye is their only way in--pushing the team to their limits when the entire plan turns upside-down.
Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents travel to Peru to investigate an object of unknown origin, codenamed 0-8-4. But when he runs into Comandante Camilla Reyes, more than just sparks fly at 30,000 feet.
In the aftermath of the Avengers' battle in New York City, the world attempts to come to grips with the presence of superheroes, gods, and aliens in their midst. Agent Coulson is resurrected under mysterious circumstances and forms an elite team of agents from SHIELD to keep track of a secret organization known as The Rising Tide. Meanwhile, they must deal with other menaces, such as a man who suddenly finds himself with vast uncontrollable power.
